The Foxtail Cabins are located on the north side of Rathbun Lake, just west of the Town of Moravia. This area offers limitless activities to choose from. Centerville, which is located just 20 minutes South of our cabins, was recently listed in Outdoor Life magazine as one of the top 200 towns in the United States for hunters and fishermen to call home. Currently, there are 17 cabins that comprise Foxtail Cabins.

Bass, Bear Cub, Big Bear, Black Lab*, Bluegill, Bobcats Den*, Eagles Nest, Elk, Moose,
Mountaineer, Pheasant*, Quail Run*, Walleye, Whitetail, Yellow Lab*
* = Dog Friendly

Whether fishing for the many species of fish in the 11,000-acre Rathbun Lake, or hunting for pheasants, quail or that trophy buck that southern Iowa is known for, today's sportsman will certainly fall in love with this area. For the non-sportsman the waters of Rathbun Lake give plenty of opportunities for boating or just relaxing on its beaches.

Beyond hunting and fishing, there is plenty of shopping to be done in the cozy shops in the nearby communities of Centerville, Albia, and Bloomfield. With the opening of the Honey Creek Resort / Water Park and Golf Course, the list of activities continues to grow.

Foxtail Cabins are also the perfect location for your family reunions or party events. We offer the option of renting multiple properties for your accommodations.

"Just thought I'd let you know that our stay at Big Bear / Bear Cub was great. We had a terrific weekend and what a beautiful place for our reunion."

So, we invite you to come and enjoy your stay at our fully-furnished, Amish-built Rathbun Lake rental cabins that are set into the beauty of this South Central Iowa area.
